We stayed one night on our way to Sydney. We took the package that included breakfast and the ceilidh. The rooms are lodge style with all the pine accessorizing. Comfortable and clean but also very Cape Breton.
But the real experience is in the dining room. French chef Jean Pierre has an incredible menu. The seafood chowder is truly to die for. My wife had lobster and I the scallops. Both were fantastic. The signature dessert was all gone so we had the adorable carrot cake but we were running late for the Ceilidh downstairs. So staff set up a table downstairs for us complete with linens and brought the carrot cake there.
Breakfast was spectacular and included in the package price. I am a Eggs Benedict lover and Jean Pierres were the best ever. My wife had the lobster omelet which she raved about. We loved it so much we stopped in for lunch a few days later on our way back to Halifax from Sydney. We were a bit early for lunch but they made me up the JP burger I was told so much about. It didn't disappoint. Since breakfast was still available my wife had to have the lobster omelet again. This time we did get a piece of the signature dessert and it was heavenly.
The staff in the DR and front desk were extremely pleasant and engaging. Will be back for sure.
